    hi everybody too :)


    quick question: is there a way to skip files, while parsing?

    look at my folder structure:

    Lost\Lost Season 1\Lost S01E01.mpg
    Lost\Lost Season 1\Lost S01E01.ifo

    If I parse with the default expressions, I will get two entries in the DB, but I need only the reference to the mpg file...



    Thx for any help in advance!

    Problem Importing TV Shows- Rookie

    So I just downloaded Media Portal yesterday and am loving it so far. But Im having a hard time importing all my tv shows. They are all very organized on my hard drive in this way:

    example:

    G:\TV Shows\Seinfeld\Season 8\08 13 The Soup ****.avi

    I have like 400 shows, so renaming the files is not an option.

    How can I import these or parse them so that they can download the info that makes this program so awesome?

    Thanks!!

    Note-

    The censor covered the word "Notsie" with astericks above, there is not four astericks at the end of each file.

    Thanks

    I'm having a similar problem, i have a number of series in the form C:\video\TV Shows\Mad Men\Season 1\S01E01 - Smoke Gets in Your Eyes

    If anyone could help me out with how to pharse these that would be great

    So this is sort of off topic to regexps for MP-TV in general, but I couldn't find any other mention of anyone else having a similar problem in my quick search.

    I'm running into the same problem as above, but instead of having the season/episode be wrong, I'd like MP-TV to support something like this:

    <series> - <year> <month> <day>.<ext>
    (with normal padding and such thrown in of course).

    MP-TV would then lookup what episode was aired on that day, and import the file as the corresponding episode. I filed an enhancement request for this here:

    Issue 127 - mptvseries - Support for <year> <month> <day> => <season> <episode> while parsing filenames - Google Code

    If you'd like to see it too, please speak up. In the meantime, I may look into writing a quickie script that will rename files along the same logic before I dump them somewhere MP-TV can see.

    I posted the same request in the forum a while back. It would be useful for many shows that air on a daily schedule.

    Well, I use this expr. for daily shows, the problem is that thetvdb expects them to be in the format 2009-02-14 i.e. with dashes and most files uses dots. so having mp-tvseries do some reformating would help

    (?<series>[^$]+).(?<FirstAired>((19|20)(\d{2})(.|-|/)([0-3]\d)(.|-|/)([0-3]\d)))(?<title>(?![^\\]*?sample)[^$]*?)\.(?<ext>[^.]*)

    PS.
    Oh, and I almost forgot, I have to use a really old db file to get this to work otherwise the episode don't show up even tho they're parsed properly.

    Okay, I'd add in a request for this too what do you mean about using a old db file? Is there any way to get this to work with the newest release?

    In the meantime, while this isn't working, how do I import seasons with more than 100 episodes, like this: Donald Duck - Short Films: Season 1 Episode List
    - guess it should be possible to edit one of the default expressions somehow?

    Hi Guys,

    i tried many regex expressions from this topic, but none has worked fine.

    My folder structure is:
    <series>/Season <Season/[Filename]

    By using the default regex i have problems with the filenames because they are like this:
    rsg-prisonbreakxvid.s02e01.avi or just
    pb-s03e02.avi

    the plugin thinks the series name is "pb" .....
    so i want the folder name as identifier for the series and the filename only for the episode.

    Another problem is that in some cases the filename differs from the s[xx]e[xx] structure, for example these files :
    bt-pb310-ger-sub.avi
    01.Bernard-Hoehenrausch.avi
    3-01 - Ein Urlaub mit Maedchen und Fischen.avi
    Dr. House.Staffel04.08.avi

    but it would not be that difficult to rename them. Most important for me is that everything else works well. Does anyone have an idea for a regex for this case?

    thanks,
    Marc
